WEST LAFAYETTE — Duke Energy says it will build a 1.6 megawatt solar power plant in the Discovery Park district near Purdue University's main campus.

The Tippecanoe County solar power plant will take up about 10 acres.

Duke and the Purdue Foundation said the solar power plant will generate enough electricity to power about 240 homes.

The plant with about seven thousand solar panels will be built this summer and is expected to start providing power later this year.
